My name is Hexar, and I'm a software engineer.
I taught myself BASIC in the 3rd grade, and then taught myself C in the 7th.
In junior high and high school, I learned HTML, CGI, SSI, CSS, PHP, and C++, and created this website as a place to
host photos, code samples, and a personal blog.

C++, and C++/CLI code, but I also wrote and maintained a lot of example applications in C# and Visual Basic .NET, as well
as doing some Visual Studio integration work in C#.
After NI, I started working on the Visual Studio Core team at Microsoft, primarily doing bug fixing for the task list
and toolbox in Visual Studio 2010.

called El Potrero Chico.

JRT Studio, and wrote a significant portion of
